Stick to whole foods as much as possible. Avoid food that has been heavily processed in a factory. If it comes in a box, that is not a good sign. If humans haven't been eating it for more than one hundred years, it is probably best to skip it.... yes, even if it is supposedly 'heart healthy.' So avoid all 'fat free' and 'low-fat' products. Avoid refined vegetable oils like corn, soy, cottonseed, and canola oil. No shortening like Crisco, either. Instead, enjoy real, natural fat. And real food -- veggies, meat, fruit (in moderation)... you know the drill.
